Louise works long hours at her own veterinarian clinic. When she receives an unexpected delivery one day, complete with a dead deliveryman, a domino-series of events puts her and her clinic full of precious animals in danger.
Rory is the first to volunteer to keep her safe. Professional reasons quickly become personal. Louise is everything he's ever wanted and never expected to find in a single woman. He's looking forward to a future together, and the only way to ensure that is to stop whatever's endangering her and her animals.
Unfortunately, the killer isn't leaving a witness to his crimes. At first, Rory and the team at Legendary Securities make headway in discovering what's going on, but the tables turn in an instant and, for the first time since he joined the team, Rory's vision of a satisfactory resolution--and happily-ever-after--may not be in the cards.
Wynn used to compete professionally in the cutthroat paragliding industry before she walked away from it, but this accident is by far the worst she's ever had. Separating her gratitude from the growing attraction is nearly impossible.
Tanner has heard the old adage that saving a life makes you responsible for it. Having admired Wynn's career when she was a professional paraglider, he's more than a little interested in keeping a close eye on the fascinating lovely who almost literally fell in his lap.
When Wynn realizes her equipment had been sabotaged, she’s worried her past has come back to haunt her. Tanner may be the only one who can help her against someone who's determined to put her and her brother out of business…permanently.
A year ago, Talon walked away from his girlfriend, Clary Witcher when she'd given him an ultimatum he couldn't win. Clary is the sister of his best friend killed in the hit-and-run. Determined to tell Clary in person that her brother's death was no accident and keep her safe from those now targeting her, Talon struggles with the haunting prospect of a reunion.
Clary has never forgotten and never forgiven herself for chasing the man she loved and still loves away with her stupid, take-it-or-leave-it threat. Her brother's death is a tragedy she's barely dealt with when Talon shows up with answers that only beg more questions. He won't leave her side, certain her brother wasn't the only target. But Clary has learned one thing from her time away from him: Love--not trouble--needs to be Talon's reason for staying with her…even if sending him away means jeopardizing her own life.

After an operation gone wrong that laid him low, Levi's obsession to find the men who betrayed him has grown to the point where nothing else seems to matter to him anymore.

Just as Levi has been at a standstill, waiting to get his final revenge, Ice can't resolve the heart of her conflicts until the monster that nearly destroyed their world is brought down for good. But the killer isn't just targeting Levi anymore. If she and Levi don't move fast, their future--whether separate or together--will be forfeit.
